“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8).
While this passage was written well over 2000 years ago, it is just as relevant, even more so today, than it had ever been. Satan, the Prince of Darkness and the Author of Confusion is “walking about”, yeah, sprinting from place to place to interject chaos and confusion wherever he sets his slimy hoofs. He is relentless in tearing down, destroying, deceiving, and uprooting all that is holy, pure, and established by our Creator - families, friends, neighbors, and churches,
There is no one person, church, or God ordained institution exempt from his ruthless onslaughts and devastating campaigns. He never sleeps nor slumbers. He has power surpassed only by Almighty God. He possesses no piety or compassion. His ways are pure evil and hatred. His armies march on and on and never lower their flag of resistance.
Brethren, what can stop such a force? Do we possess weapons powerful enough to hold back and restrain such an evil force? I say yes! Look at the following orders from our Commander in Chief:
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints...” (Ephesians 6:10-18).
My fellow friends in Christ, God is the one we should seek and follow. He is an all-encompassing power that not even the Devil is a match for! In the Lord’s presence there is safety and protection! There is power, power, wonder working power in the precious blood of the Lamb! “Keep on Praising, Praying, and Proclaiming the Truth of God’s Word!” Amen!
